Mothers of Preschoolers
What Is MOPS?
MOPS International is a globally chartered organization that exists to encourage, equip, and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother, and leader in the name of Jesus Christ.
MOPS stands for “mothers of preschoolers” – but don’t let that confuse you. MOPS is about meeting the needs of every mom of a child from conception through kindergarten. Whether you’re urban, suburban, rural, stay-at-home, working, teen, adoptive, special-needs, single, or married, MOPS is for you!
MOPS groups are communities that strive to meet the needs of every mom with children from birth through kindergarten with the goal of creating a place where all moms feel welcomed and loved. These groups are a great place to make new and lasting friendships with other women who desire to bless the Lord by raising Christ-centered children.

Here at CHFC MOPS, our focus is to support, encourage, and make life a little bit easier for our MOPS mommas. In order to address the constantly changing demands of day-to-day life during this wildly unpredictable time, we have shifted our program to provide flexibility and options for each of you. Although we are not in a position to meet in-person, we have discovered how important it is to continue gathering virtually(for the time being). We have planned 7 sessions that address the current needs of our MOP mommas, including marriage, how to have difficult conversations, and training a child up in the faith. Instead of being automatically assigned to a small group, each lady will have the option to sign-up for one or opt-out. This allows women to sign-up for the program/sessions only and attend the program from 8-8:45 PM or stay-on after to meet with a small group. There is also an option to attend a small group that meets on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 AM. In addition, you can choose whether you would like to participate in playdates and Mom's nights out with fellow MOPS mommas, even if you are not in a small group. Our prayer is to support each and every one of you in the best way possible and provide a program that brings tools, humor, and a little bit of joy to everyday life.
The Winter/Spring 2021 MOPS at Canyon Hills Friends Church begins on Thursday, February 11, 2021, and will meet virtually every other Thursday night at 8:00 PM through Thursday, May 6.

Our MOPS program is built on several foundational principles:
